Record breaking ticket sales at the Manatee Players

The next production at the Manatee Players will be sold out before it opens! GUYS AND DOLLS, which runs February 17-March 6, is the fastest selling show in the Manatee Players’ long history. As of February 4th, 99% of the tickets had been sold. A performance was added on Sunday evening February 27 and it is already 50% sold out. According to Marketing Manager Denny Miller, in the nearly 30 years that he has been associated with the Manatee Players, no show ever sold out before opening. He is looking forward to the opening of the new Manatee Performing Arts Center that will have a larger theater and will be able to accommodate more patrons. “Our staff and over 500 volunteers work very hard to provide quality theatre to our patrons and I think all that hard work has paid off with record sales this season. Over 2700 season memberships were sold this season and walk-in patrons have been higher than usual.” A scattering of single seats is still available for several performances and can be reserved by calling the box office at 941-748-0111 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online at www.manateeplayers.com. Further questions about these record breaking ticket sales can be directed to Managing Artistic Director Rick Kerby at 941-748-0111.
